Promoting exercise behaviours
If we are to get more disabled people physically active, it is vital we understand the psychological factors that underpin participation in disability sport and exercise. By investigating the barriers, benefits and facilitators associated with all forms of disability sport and exercise, better evidence-based promotion initiatives can be designed.
